But before we get to today's links, how awesome is that photo above?
The Tigers are in Orange County for four consecutive night games. Which, you know, sucks. I'm not sure how many innings of baseball any of us will actually see over the next few days. However, I can tell you BigAl has graciously stepped up and pledged to watch the games and do recaps while the rest of us sleep. We owe him a big thank-you for that. On to the links:
MLive: Tigers will be greeted by familiar face in Fernando Rodney when facing Angels
He's been doing pretty well lately for the Angels. Hopefully the Tigers don't put him in position to have a save opportunity, but if they do it would be great to see the Rodney of old giving up baserunners.
MLB.com: Laird frustrated with runners' success
Fans aren't the only ones annoyed with Gerald Laird's sudden loss of throwing base stealers out.
MLive: Tigers' Bobby Seay, Zach Miner continue to rehab in Lakeland
Both sound awhile out. Seay is obviously a lot farther out, as he attempts to rehab from a career-threatening injury.
DetNews: Austin Jackson, Barbaro Garbey have something in common
According to Tom Gage:
Tigers rookie center fielder Austin Jackson went into Saturday night's game with five multiple-hit games in the nine he's played as a major leaguer. He's the sixth Tiger since at least 1920 to have five in his first nine -- the most recent being Barbaro Garbey in 1984.
